Clean Ocean Action

Clean Ocean Advocate, September 2006

A Message of “Thanks”

     Jessie Barrett, our 2006 C.O.A.S.T. Intern, is off to start her senior year at Rowan University.  Before leaving COA, Jessie wrote this message of thanks:

     “On behalf of COA, I thank all of the volunteers that lent their time and effort to this year’s C.O.A.S.T. Campaign.  With the help of extraordinary volunteers, thousands of citizens learned that they are the solution to ocean pollution.  Also, special thanks to the great host towns and beach clubs who helped make the weekend events possible.

     The 2006 C.O.A.S.T. campaign, stationed at 26 sites, was a great success, raising nearly $3,500 to continue efforts to stop ocean pollution, and collecting more than 1,000 petition signatures and postcards from citizens in support of H.R. 5872, ‘The NJ/NY Clean Ocean Zone’ bill. 

     Over the 16 years of C.O.A.S.T., dedicated volunteers have reached an amazing number of beach-goers and shore visitors.  With the continued support and cooperation of citizens, organizations, towns, and beach clubs, COA will continue the tradition and defend the ocean for years to come.”
